Imagine you are a young mechanic living in a small community in France. You own your own home, and lead a simple life. Then, one evening, you open your front door to find a distraught Hollywood starlet standing in front of you. This is what happens to Arthur Dreyfuss in the village of Long, population 687 inhabitants. But although feigning an American accent, this woman is not all that she seems. For her name is Jeanine Foucamprez, and her story is very different from the glamorous life of a star. Arthur is not all he seems, either; a lover of poetry with a darker past than one might imagine, he has learnt to see beauty in the mundane. THE FIRST THING YOU SEE is a warm, witty novel about two fragile souls learning to look beyond the surface - for the first thing you see isn't always what you get!

Über die Launen der Liebe und den Unterschied von Schein und Sein. Arthur ist Automechaniker und liebt Hollywoodfilme. Eines Abends klingelt es an der Tür, er öffnet, und vor ihm steht - Scarlett Johansson. Sie ist genauso schön wie im Film, nur dass sie eigentlich Jeanine heißt, wie er aus einem kleinen Provinznest stammt und es längst leid ist, immer für die berühmte Schauspielerin gehalten zu werden. Arthur ist erst zwanzig, aber er hat schon einiges erlebt: Während seine Mutter sich mit Edith Piaf und Martini tröstet, flüchtet er sich in die funkelnde Welt von Hollywood und kennt jeden Film und jeden Star. Mit den Frauen hat er bisher kein Glück gehabt, auch wenn er aussieht wie der Schauspieler Ryan Gosling, nur besser. Als nun plötzlich die vermeintliche Scarlett Johansson bei ihm einzieht, wird sein Leben auf den Kopf gestellt. Doch dann gesteht Scarlett ihm, dass sie eigentlich Jeanine heißt. Längst hat sie sich in Arthur verliebt. Aber wen liebt er? Jeanine - oder doch Scarlett? Erkennt er, wer sie wirklich ist, oder sieht er in ihr nur den Filmstar?

Drawing on a wide body of research, including extensive in-depth interviews, THE ONE THING YOU NEED TO KNOW reveals the central insights that lie at the core of: Great Managing, Great Leadership and Great Careers. Buckingham uses a wealth of relevant examples to reveal that at the heart of each insight lies a controlling insight. Lose sight of this 'one thing' and all of your best efforts at managing, leading, or individual achievement will be diminished. For great managing, the controlling insight has less to do with fairness, or team building, or clear expectations (although all are important). Rather, the one thing great managers know is the need to discover and then capitalize on what is unique about each person. For leadership, the controlling insight is the opposite - discover and capitalize on what is universal to all your people, regardless of differences in personality, race, sex, or age. For sustained individual success, the controlling insight is the need to discover what you don't like doing, and know how and when to stop doing it. In every way a groundbreaking work, THE ONE THING YOU NEED TO KNOW offers crucial performance and career lessons for business people at every level.

Cori Coleman is currently enticing readers with short stories and long tales of fantasy, love, and perseverance. Mentallly Challenged: why name call? A title to make you think; he thought to himself - as he begins his journey as a writer, became more than a catch phrase but what Coleman intends to soon make a monument in society. with an older brother diagnosed with a learning disability, at age 16 Coleman began some extensive research into what challenges fell before his older brother in life. After observing children from elementary schools, middle schools, and high school, it became evident the challenges of those with disabilities can be reading, writing, listening, memory, and various other obstacles. Many of the individuals with disabilities were successful at learning how to overcome reading and writing challenges, but there was however one challenge each individual failed to overcome every day, night, and forever - the disability itself. Today we label certain individuals with mental disabilities as challenged, but how incontrovertibly unfair and beyond untrue. from youth to adults, there is no challenge here, they will not recover or become reborn, or endure some living transformation involving the spirit ideas of reincarnation. When you have autism that is what you have, autism and that will not change. As for us, what I hear many of us describe ourselves as "Normal folk" it is apparent, we do have challenges, mental challenges and we also have possible real life solutions leading us to the victory over these challenge. Our lives are far more complex than any rare or common disability. What we endure on a daily basis is the very evidence of the manifestation of our challenges psychologically. the labels we press upon those who have to live with certain behaviors indefinitely must be reassigned. for our intelligence has been praised often to high, and our system of living is and has been bullied into a pattern of obstacles and struggles only the normal man can create for another human being. We have responsibilities far more grave and life threatening and the time to seek out these challenges is now. the time to realize who really suffers from Mental Challenges is now. and the individual's, who shall first recognize this, is we. Change starts now.

If you’ve ever watched a dog chew on a bone, you’ve probably noticed how hard she concentrates on it—turning it over, getting a stronger grip, digging her teeth into it. She knows that the best meat is at the center of the bone, so she keeps chewing until she gets to the really good stuff. Believe it or not, that’s not too different than what it means to meditate. Meditation essentially means to chew on something over and over again. Chew on This provides you with something to chew on that will take you deeper—to the really good stuff. The more you chew on Scripture, the more you allow it to nourish you and give you strength. But even more than that, it draws you closer to the God who created you and wants to be in a relationship with you. During this month long devotional, you’ll walk through guided meditations, journaling opportunities, Scripture to chew on, and questions for reflection. All these experiences will help you discover Christ in your everyday life and grow closer to God. Take a big bite and chew on God’s Word for a while. See how good the “good stuff” inside can really be.

For many years Ireland has been a popular tourist destination and tourism has been one of the most significant social, economic and cultural forces in Irish society. Irish Tourism: Image, Culture and Identity engages with major national and international debates on contemporary tourism through cutting-edge research. The book explores the multi-faceted nature of this important phenomenon, drawing on current work in sociology, cultural studies, ethnography, and language studies. For those who theorise about tourism and those who make practical day-to-day decisions on tourism policy, Irish Tourism will provide invaluable insights into historical and contemporary tourist representations, practices and impacts. In addressing issues such as the relationship between the local and the global in tourist settings, the construction of tourist imagery and products, and the development of tourism policy, contributors to Irish Tourism offer an innovative and critical analysis of the impact of global tourism on a small country. This book will be indispensable reading for students and scholars in Tourism Studies and Irish Studies and will also be essential for students of sociology, cultural studies, geography, languages and anthropology.
